cafeteria in the work place
hard to improve your career
I worked for the Fairmont for nearly 2 years and I was so excited to get started here. I wanted to move up with the brand and start my career here and learn more as a barista. Unfortunately for me, their standards of hot drinks they serve to guests are baseline Tim Hortons when I was expecting 5 star baristas. After about 6 months there and having helped train my managers that came into my department I quickly realized there was no opportunity for advancement in my position at all. When I brought this up with the executives, I was told I could switch positions in the hotel but that I couldn't move upward. That was fine and I accepted the position as something that gave me time to explore the mountains and more importantly use those amazing Fairmont benefits, but once the world shut down this company's problems really became clear. I was brought back to help reopen the hotel and it was a disaster. We were understaffed from the moment we opened to the day I left. The managers refused to hire qualified staff and short cut our departments so the other ones would have more staff even though our sales and guest count was through the roof. We had no management most days, and there was no one present to manage the number of people coming into the café and ensure that they were wearing their masks.

Fairmont gives a better quality of life. Balanced and little bit less stress working there comparatively. Everyone gets chances to do the right thing. Benefits and perks and good Too. Altogether the best place to work with.

Shifts according seniority
There is absolutely no job security. If you’re a part time, you’ll be treated like you don’t belong. The management is poor. The staff is self centred. Management pretends to listen to your issues but takes no step whatsoever. It’s probably the union thing they have which has made their life so difficult. The permanent employees working there don’t know how to perform, but they cannot be fired either.
Working in an unionized workplace, rates and benefits are not complained. Co-workers are very friendly, but some people are very lazy because they have been their for 25 years and they know job security is high so they don't bother do much. I learn that if you got a job here, it's worth to apply for Marriott or Hilton because growth is limited (e.g: cross training and schedule depends on your seniority)
benefits and wages
Very productive! Our property is at the airport so flight delays and cancelations are an everyday occurence. It keeps us
Overwhelming at times but now everything after this will be a walk in the park. Learned to be independent and at the same time to ask for help. Learned a lot about the industry from the other side of the table. Very humbling and educational.
people. people. people. love them!
